UN: New reports address human rights issues in counter-terrorism

Martin Scheinin, the UN expert on counter-terrorism and human rights, presented a new report before the Human Rights Council on racial profiling and suicide attacks. In another report to the Human Rights Council, the Working Group on arbitrary detention raised concerns about international transfers of detainees in the context of countering terrorism, including the practices of renditions, diplomatic assurances and the return of persons under assurance of continued detention without charge or legal basis for detention.
